A SMILING COUNTENANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 1 October 1914

A SMILING COUNTENANCE. A tired man sat on the upper duck of a lorry boat that "was lighting hard to get ipto its slip against contrary wind and stream, and ho glanced with a kind of. mournful curiosity at two fellow- passengers. Things had been going wrong with the man; there was an ebb tide in his-'-bilsiness, as on this gloomy f greasy river below him. He was weary of trying to paddle the poor little flimsy canoe of his own life against the .strong, current that .was pulling him .^eTbiitless .towards the sea. He overheard tlie conversa tion of the pair beside him. k'Jane," that other man was saying, "it looks bad for us, doesn't it,'with the rent - coming duo, and the baby sick, and the coal 'most gone?" "Yes, Jim," she answered "but still we've got each other!", And with the words . there went a smile, and the brave little woman' patted her hus band's hand and lie smiled back at her., , ; That night the tired man carried flowers home to. his wife—not many • of them, for lie could...

THE UNDULY SENSITIVE WOMAN. : .To put this into another form, ;"Do not lie sensitive to the judgements and I 'criticisms of-your follows." How sen sitive some women are! They eveif aug\, to discover what their friends ana acquaintances think and say of theni.' They are restless arid uncom fortable tiil they learn." If it is fav orable, they are unduly elated.

"Tell mc, dear, what do you really think of met'" "Now, apart from the lack of sch vespeet such a demand evidences, it is 'a woeful confession of silly weakness betraying a character' devoid of self reliance.

RADIUM ON DEATH. "Even in an age of wonderful dis coveries that announced to-day is well oalculated to astonish the least imagi native. It cannot be said that the curative properties of radium are as vet definitely established, though there Is excellent ground for hope in the facts cited by Sir Frederick Treves," says tho Daily News. "But the mere details of the new discovery are so amazing that the mind staggers at them. "The great barrier to tho adapta tion of inventions to the service of man has'nearly always been tho absence of some olioap and effective waj of dis seminating thera What the Radium Institute has done is to make it pos sible for any country doctor to em ploy tl/o most expensive known sub stance in the treatment of _ his pa tients ^at a very moderate cost.

FEEDING YOUNG CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 8 October 1914

FEEDING YOUNG CALVES. The greatest mistake made - witli young calves, that is, calves from the time they are bom until they are two .oi»--Uiroo.moixtUs old, is oyorfoodill^. If one feeds whole milk there is 110 dan ger. Nature has made whole milk so that the call' can take all of it that you can coax it to take without in jurious offeets. But when you un balance the ration by taking the fat out of the milk, and then try to make up by feeding a larger quantity of skim milk, serious results may follow. When calves begin to scour after they havo been .started on .skim-milk, it is al most absolutely sure that you aro over-feeding. Cut down the milk. It is barely possible, of course, that you aro feeding the milk cold. This ought, not to bo. The young calf ought to have the skim-milk _ direct from the, separator, or if the milk goes to the creamery and comes back cold, then it should be warmed up. There is 110 better way to do this than to have a little agricultural steam boiler and turn...

Specialist Explains Cause of Stomach Trouble. VALUABLE ADVICE TO SUF FERERS. . •' There are many different forms of stomach trouble," said a well known specialist recently, "but practically all are traceable to acidity and food fermentation. That is why the results obtained from the use of drugs are usually so disappointing. Admitting fer mentation and consequent acidity of the food contents to be the un derlying cause ®f most forms of in digestion, it naturally follows that the use of a reliable antacid, such as the pure bisurated magnesia which is so frequently prescribed by physicians, w 11 produce better results than any known drug or combination of drugs. Accoidingly I almost invariably advise those who complain of digestive trouble to 'get some bisurated magnesia (note the name carefully, as other forms are unsuitable for this pur pose,) from their chemist,.and take half a teaspoonful of the powder or two 5-grain compressed tablets, with a little water after meals.

In a half day the blacksmith will have everything in good shape for him at a nominal cost. There are many far mers who do not put 'their machinery away in the autumn until they have soon that all necessary repairs are made to put them in good running shape for the next year. This is no doubt a good plan. There will be no need for the farmer to change his mind with any responsibility along this line xwhen he is rushed in the spring of the year. I am convinced that it does not pay to work .with machinery that Is not in good repair. A stitch in time saves nine may bo an old adage, but it is a good one.

Further, I was directed to forward £400 as a first instalment to the hon the Minister of Defence allowing him full discretionary power to apply the money to the most deserv ing fund or fur.ds, as it was considered that he was in the best position to know where the money would do the most good. .4 s a number of ratepayers has written asking that their donation should be applied to particular funds, the council has resolved to open funds to be applied as the donor wishes. Any money that may be sent to me will be acknowledged through the press to the particular fund desired. This will give every ratepayer and non-ratepayer an opportunity of showing their practical loyalty and sympathy to the throne and flag. In conclusion, I would like to quote tw...
